Vintage Valentine Party Hosted By Joan at Anything Goes Here

Happy Valentines Day to everyone. My post will be a bit short due to me being under the weather. Here are some of my vintage valentines.

This is my favorite vintage valentine.



These are vintage inspired valentine's I picked up a few years ago. They came with cute little vellum envelops.

I have to say that my favorite Valentines Day memories are of being a child and passing out valentines at school. Every year we would make valentine mail boxes out of tissue boxes and decorate them with red and pink construction paper and stickers. Then we would go from desk to desk and pass out valentine cards. It was always so much fun to get home and open the box and see what goodies were inside.
Now it's fun to make it special for my own children. We always give them a special little treat for Valentines Day.
Enjoy your Valentines Day and check out all of the other participants at Anything Goes Here.

  5. Of course my decorated shoe box for the Valentines Day swap, was always over the top. I would collect bits and pieces of buttons and bling way in advance of the day. It was a good memory.
